In honor of Veteran’s Day, I would like to share a poem that was emailed to me as a chain email to send off to other friends. Typically I do not care for these types of emails, but this one stood out as meaningful. I thought my readers would enjoy reading it, therefore, I am putting it up in entirety in this post. I do not know who the author of this Beautiful poem is, but I would like to say thank you for writing such a meaningful poem.
Please tell all the Veterans in your life how much you appreciate their sacrifice.
Happy Veteran’s Day to all the men and women who valiantly served our country.
Enjoy the Poem – It is Quite beautiful.. But I must warn you, it is a tearjerker… so be prepared..
